We are still in the final testing process for docusign, so it isn’t widely available yet. But it will be soon.
Opened up our API and documented it with swagger. To use this, you would need to generate and/or use an API code
Ability to run select Group report across multiple teams. Not if you need this configured, you need at least 1 departmental admin per team to approve it with a help ticket.

On the equipment details, next to the Bigfix Id, there is now a i icon for more information. This will lookup the Bigfix

Sept 3, 2019
We have changed how the “key” part of equipment attributes can be selected. Previously, you could type anything. Now we have a default of attribute keys that are system wide and the ability for the Departmental Admin to add more for your team.
CSV imports of equipment can still use any key value, but there will be a warning message if one used isn’t in the list.
Existing data will not be changed, and if you edit equipment with a key that isn’t in the list it will save as long as you don’t modify the existing key.
If it isn’t found, it will be highlighted in red and will be removed when you click Go.
The Departmental Admin can access the page to maintain the Team’s Equipment Attribute Keys from the Admin menu.
Current System wide Equipment Attribute Keys:
External Link – URL to more info
Hostname – Hostname
IP Address – IP Address
MAC Address – Media Access Control Address
Operating System – Operating System
Owner – The person responsible for the equipment
Phone Number – Phone Number
Purchase Date – Date was purchased
Purchase Identifier – External Order Identifier
Service Tag – Service Tag
CSV Import for keys has had a couple new fields added. KeyNotes, KeyTags, and SerialNotes. Note, the KeyNotes and KeyTags will only be applied for new “Keys” not the Key Serials (Physical Keys).
Added “Special” as a choice for the Key Serial status. In combination with notes, this could be used to identify a key serial that is assigned to someone not in IAM.
Also added “Special” as a filter choice for the key’s table. It will fall under the inactive filter as well.
Aug 17 - 21, 2019
CSV Import people can now update existing people in your team.
Updated our date picker.
Longer team names now display correctly on the choose team page.
Added a “Make a Suggestion” link to the help page.

Added 2 new dropdown fields to Equipment. Protection Level and Availability Level.
These are visible when the equipment type is one of the following: ‘Computer’, ‘Desktop’, ‘Laptop’, ‘Server’, ‘Cellphone’, ‘Device’
Existing data that matches these types have been set to the minimal values (P1 and A1). You should review these and edit them as necessary.
These two new fields are also on the CSV equipment import and are required for the types listed above.
Descriptions of these can be found here: https://security.ucop.edu/policies/institutional-information-and-it-resource-classification.html

Updated the emails. Links are underlined, text updated.
June 11, 2019
Remember the number of rows selected on the Assets tables (People, Equipment, etc.). This uses local storage, so if you move to a new computer it will default back to showing 20 rows unless you change it again.
June 5, 2019
Moved the “+ Add People”, “+ Add Equipment” Etc. buttons from the bottom left of the asset lists to the upper right so you don’t have to scroll to the bottom to add assets.
June 4, 2019

May 2, 2019

Fixed issue with KeySerial (Physical Keys) history not being recorded.
Changed Key Serials under keys so that they can be sorted and searched.
Both the key code and serial are now displayed in the first column for improved searching if you have this whole value instead of just the serial portion.
The list of key serials within a person has remained unchanged.
As with other sorting of tables, you can click or shift click on the column headings to sort.
March 26, 2019
For Text Only emails (Non HTML) added more email details for Expiring and notification emails to more closely match what is in the HTML part of the emails. Most users will never see this part of the email, but it will be useful for those using old email readers.

A new report for those actions.

March 5, 2019
Trouble finding the org that is related to your space? No problem, we’ve added a building search to the page where you add orgs to your team. Just enter the building name, or part of the name and search. This will list all the building and departments in them with the org code that Facilities uses for that space. For here you can just click Add to add that org to your team.
It is possible the org code that Facilities has for the space is no longer valid in KFS. Previously we would not have allowed this to be added as it is no longer valid, but now we check to see what is in the spaces as well and will allow an invalid org to be added.
March 1, 2019
Added a notes field to all asset types.
For equipment, added a dropdown “type” field. If Card is selected, Make and Model will be hidden. The following choices:
If other choices are needed and useful, we are open to adding them to the list, but we don’t want it to get too long.
